ANKLE PAIN: SYMPTOMS & CAUSES
Ankle pain is any type of pain or discomfort in your ankles. It is often due to ankle sprain as a result of injured ligaments which connect bones to one another. In such cases, the ankle is usually twisted inward leading to tears in the ligaments and inflammation which causes the ankle to swell, making it painful when weight is placed on the ankle. Infection in the ankle joint, ligament or surrounding areas and medical conditions such as arthritis, gout, etc. will also result in ankle pain. Reducing the inflammation helps to alleviate the pain and discomfort. Ankle pain when walking may be caused by overstrain of the ankle joints due to the constant flexing and extension movement of the foot while walking or aggravation of an old injury. Not doing enough warm up stretches can result in ankle pain while running, or through overuse and trying to do too much too soon. Ankle pain after sleeping is usually due to stiff joints which will loosen up after doing some “warming up” stretches.
